Company introduces new Lokotrack LT400J jaw crusher and Lokotrack LT350C cone crusher 

METSO have launched the first two units in their Lokotrack EC range, bringing a new diesel-electric power line to the aggregates market. The Lokotrack LT400J is a 68-tonne mobile jaw crusher designed for the primary crushing of hard rock and recycled aggregates, whilst the Lokotrack LT350C is a 50-tonne mobile cone crusher for secondary and tertiary crushing.

The LT350C is equipped with the new Nordberg HP350e cone crusher, whilst the LT400J utilizes the proven Nordberg C120 jaw crusher. Both units can be seamlessly combined with each other as well as with Lokotrack mobile screens to produce high-quality aggregates.

 

All the process functions of the Lokotrack EC range machines are electric, significantly reducing the use of hydraulic oil needed in the crushing operations, and all EC range units can be powered with external electricity.

‘When external electricity is available, the new electric power transmission provides high capacity with minimized operational cost and CO2 emissions,’ said Jarmo Vuorenpää, director of the new Lokotrack offering.

‘When not available, the onboard diesel gensets allow maximum independent operation time. Also, auxiliary units, such as mobile screens and stackers, can be powered from the same gensets, which will further reduce the needed power to run the complete plant.’

The Lokotrack EC range has been developed using new, modular architecture, which reduces the number of components and provides scalable solutions that can be adapted for different applications and capacities.

‘The new way to do product development enables a faster and more agile way to meet the changing customer needs,’ said Renaud Lapointe, senior vice-president of the Metso products business line in the Aggregates business area. ‘Furthermore, it enables more efficient support for the machines with fewer parts needed and easier upgrades of new features.’

Metso say all the components of the new EC range have been designed and tested to perform in demanding conditions to reach maximum uptime for the customers. Safety and usability have been given special attention with the design of the LT400J and LT350C fulfilling the latest safety standard whilst being easier to use than ever. With new digital tools, the units can be operated safely from the excavator and be quickly set from transport to operation.
